How to prevent new file/package actions

Hi all.

We are trying to improve our old clearcase plugin.
Our probelm is simple:
com.intellij.openapi.vfs.VirtualFileAdapter#fileCreated is called after the process of creating file is already began.

We want somehow to add hook, such all new file/package actions will be disabled if certain condition is not satisfactory.

Unlike many other CVS plugins, out plugin is stateless, once user add file, it also added to ClearCase. We have no 'commit project' action.

Thanks
Boaz

Hello Boaz,

There is no way to do what you want. There are lots of places in IntelliJ
IDEA which create files, not all of them use VFS, and there is no way to
block an arbitraty piece of code from creating a new java.io.File().

By the way, why do you work on the old ClearCase plugin rather than use the
new IDEA version with the new bundled plugin? Our version of ClearCase plugin
is still fully open-source, actually.

Hello Boaz,

It's in the usual place. The Subversion repository is at http://svn.jetbrains.org/idea/
The Diana version of the plugin is http://svn.jetbrains.org/idea/Trunk/bundled/ClearCaseIntegration/
And the Selena version is http://svn.jetbrains.org/idea/BRANCHES/SelenaMinor/bundled/ClearCaseIntegration/

Can I have link to this open source ?

Thanks
